It’s sad enough that this former SNL writer/actor declared a run for Senator of Minnesota. But now it appears the recount he demanded is somehow more than cutting in half the lead that his opponent had on him.

A few snippets of this article, which was taken from The Wall Street Journal (emphasis added):

It’s not unusual that state officials, in double-checking the initial election results, would find and fix errors. What is unusual is that nearly every “fix” has gone in favor of Franken.

In Two Harbors, a liberal outpost near Duluth, Franken picked up an additional 246 votes, while none of the other contests in that precinct recorded any changes in their vote total.

……”Mr. Franken’s gains so far are 2.5 times the corrections made for Barack Obama in the state, and nearly three times the gains for Democrats across Minnesota Congressional races.”

The newspaper also notes that the post-election process is being overseen by Democratic Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, an ally of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), “of fraudulent voter-registration fame.”


I’d say with three seats away from the desired 60 (and two still undecided), Democrats might have a little incentive to ‘find’ all the votes they can. I guess they’ll stop at nothing.

Personally, I’m not fond of the idea of funny-man Al Fraken being so close to snagging a spot in the nation’s Senate. He’ll fit right in with the radical left already in Washington–which is frightening.
